Ah, sorry, that wasn't clear to me.

Indeed, which is why I've done a lot of work on a reimplementation of
the Bitcoin scripting system as well:
Which has this cheery warning at the top:
Be warned that there are highly likely to be consensus bugs in this

before using this module.
I'll be adding a FFI interface to libconsensus in the future... and I
probably should make that warning scarier...
